WATCH: Full trailer arrives with release date for Star Trek: Lower Decks

The trailer has finally arrived for new Star Trek animated series Lower Decks and it looks  funny.

We learned a while back that the show will be set during the Next Generation timeline and may see appearances from familiar face from that era (here).

While the show does look good and, as we learned, is set in the official Trek canon, it also looks like it belongs in the Rick & Morty universe more than the Trek one.

Nonetheless, I’ll be tuning in and it is certainly more anticipated for me than any of CBS’ live-action Trek stuff.

Let me know your thoughts, gang.

Developed by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (“Rick and Morty,” “Solar Opposites”), “Star Trek: Lower Decks”, a new half-hour animated comedy series, focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380. Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi have to keep up with their duties and their social lives, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.

“Star Trek: Lower Decks” premieres August 6, only on CBS All Access.

Here’s the full logo:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
